When you convert to registering as a normal driver you should do this
waiting before registering the CODEC and DAI with the core - that will
stop the ASoC card coming up before the CODEC is ready and means that
you don't need to have a thread sitting blocked on the startup

I worry what will happen when someone builds a machine which doesn't
bother hooking up the interrupt line - is it possible to poll for
completion of startup if no interrupt is provided?  If they aren't using
the jack and accessory detect functionality I can see someone not
bothering to hook it up.  OTOH that could always be added later on if
